The tallest and probably the biggest character to enter Street Fighter V
's roster will go live on July 25. Abigail hails from the roster of Capcom's 1989 side scroller game called Final Fight and was said to be named after the heavy metal album by King Diamond.
is a ringleader of the Mad Gear gang situated in the Bay Area of Metro City in the same universe with Street Fighter. Considered as a "Gear Head," this character loves the sound of automobiles and everything that goes with it which explains the way his outfit is designed. His appearance in Street Fighter V is triggered by his thorough search of his monster truck throughout Metro City.
Abigail's V-skill is executed by thrusting his sizeable belly forward which could either be high or low to counter his opponents attacks which will then set him up for a combo opportunity.
V-Trigger: Max Power
Abigail's two-bar V-Trigger will enable him to charge up his various heavy punches which can do one hit of armor and extended juggles. A fully charged V-trigger, on the other hand, can easily penetrate his opponent's defenses by breaking its guard.
Critical Art: Abigail Special
Abigail's Critical Arts will make his opponent look like a rag doll. This is executed by slamming his opponent thru a downward open palm strike (a.k.a b____h slap) which will put them in a trance-like state, this will then be followed with a quick hoist through the air followed by a speedbag-like pummelling ending with a screen-shattering hook.
Abigail has two command grabs and has an ability called "Nitro Charge Runs" which has one hit of armour which can be canceled by four follow-ups( a stiff punch, command grab, cumbersome overhead, and V-Skill.) This character will have his very own unique stage and two costumes (Story and Premium).
Abigail makes the rest of the roster look small and he looks ferocious but his type of build make's him an easy target for the rest of the roster. What do you think? Check out the character trailer and gallery below and stay tuned for more gaming news and updates.
